    ATV61, would like to have a PTC alarm only without tripping the drive.

    Issue:
    Customer is connecting PTC probes to LI6 and wants to have an alarm indicate when the temperature goes too high.

    Product Line:
    ATV61, altivar 61, ATV71, Altivar 71

    Environment:
    All models, all serial numbers

    Cause:
    Using PTC probes, they can only get an indication when the drive goes into fault.  They would like warning alarm before the fault condition

    Resolution:
    The only way to have just a warning: Alarm Group 1 and R2 ON, is to assign:

    1.8 Fault Management
      PTC Management
          LI6=PTC Probe [PTCL] = Always

      Motor Thermal Prot
          Overload Fault Mgt [OLL] = Ignore


    1.5 Inputs/Outputs CFG
      R2 Configuration
          R2 Assignment [R2] = Alarm Grp1

      Alarm Grp1 Definition
          LI6=PTC Alarm [PLA] = ON

    !!   However, the side effect of: Overload Fault Mgt [OLL] = Ignore is, that motor thermal protection by calculating the I2t will not trip the drive.  The drive will not have overload protection.
